Delicious!

We just left the Fishmonger with 4 kids on tow and it was really good! The kids and husband had fish and chips. The clam chowder was excellent! The Titos martini was so good! My husband asked how a beer was and our waiter gave him a taste which we thought was pretty cool. I had the fish tacos and... read more

We've been taking our boat down to Wood's Hole for years, and loved to have breakfast at Fishmonger, right near the drawbridge. Fantastic location. Unfortunately the place has now completely eliminated itself from my list of potential destinations. We went there with another couple for breakfast last weekend. The restaurant was understaffed, the service was not poor, it was horrible,... More

Food was good nothing special but terribly overpriced for what you got. $24 for lobster melt with tiny amount of lobster. $17 for fish tacos with small bits of cod. Much better value at other places. Skip this one

We went in for a couple of beers but this place is also a small restaurant and the smells from the diners were good. We sat at the bar - seats out 8 people. Alex the barman was really friendly and keen to help in advice on beer selections- they also do a flight of beers - see photo 4... More

Stopped in on a whim after the Falmouth Road Race for lunch and a beer, was pleasantly surprised. Had hoped for something outside, but sat by a breezy window watching the boats go through the drawbridge which was just as good. Rustic, wooden interior - fits the character of the area for the most part, but definitely not a fancy... More

Very friendly bar. I can't comment on the food because we only sat at the bar for a couple drinks but noticed quite a few locals visiting which is always a good thing.

We came here for lunch on a whim, with several friends. We were seated more or less right away. As far as I know, everyone's food was delicious. There were several vegetarian options, and my cold wrap was great. The crab cake sandwich was also reported to be fantastic. The burrito was good, and was giant, as advertised. Our waitress... More

We went for breakfast and it was fabulous. Pancakes were fluffy and inlets were packed. The staff was extremely friendly and it's right on the water! A definite must!

I always like this café for its charm and great selection. My daughter gets a thrill from sitting at the window and watching the Woods Hole drawbridge go up every twenty minutes or so. The food is good though priced higher than it should be. it's very unfortunate to report therefore that during our last visit both toilets backed up... More

We had two breakfasts there. Both were really good, particularly the scramble with plenty of lobster. The hash the next day was also good and came with eggs and home fries. This place is not budget priced, but the view was great and we did not feel rushed so our group enjoyed relaxing and chatting in a nice environment.
